The lighting of Falls Park at the Winter Wonderland has become a family tradition in Sioux Falls.

The 13th Annual Winter Wonderland Kick-off, hosted by the Sioux Falls Convention and Visitors Bureau, will be “flipping the switch” to hundreds of thousands of lights on Friday, November 20, 2015 at 6pm.

Falls Park has been transforming into a magical park with garlands, animated lighting and twinkle lights to dazzle crowds. The kick-off event welcomes the beginning of the holiday season and will include guest appearances by Santa and Mrs. Claus, live reindeer and animal friends. Horse-drawn wagon rides are free to the public and hot chocolate and cookies are available.

Please note visitors are highly encouraged to park downtown and enjoy free bus rides into Falls Park. Falls Park will be closed to drive-through traffic during the event. The Visitor Information Center parking lots will be strictly designated for handicapped accessible parking only. Get more information at:

Winter Wonderland is a dazzling display of lights and continues to “light up” nightly through January 10, 2016.
